Lennon adds Eardley to Easter Road squad


HIBERNIAN boss Neil Lennon has signed former Birmingham City defender Neal Eardley on a deal until January following a successful trial. Lennon has recruited the Wales cap to compete with David Gray at right-back. Eardley, 27, has not played a competitiv­e first-team game since January 2016 after damaging cruciate knee ligaments in the Blues’ FA Cup defeat to Bournemout­h. The former Oldham and Blackpool player now hopes to use the next three months to convince Lennon he deserves an extended stay at Easter Road. Speaking about Eardley recently, Lennon said: ‘He’s got vast experience and he’s overcome a couple of injuries.’
